While visiting Nantucket we decided to catch a performance at the local theater. We saw Black Tie which was so well done. Nice small theater in the basement of a church. A nice little surprise.

Great show put on by locals . Very nice theatre venue, great stage design. Seemed like half of Island children were in play. It was a great experience for my wife and I. We will go again next time on Island. We have been to other plays here and they have been very well done as well. Highly recommend when... More

Production of Wizard of Oz at Bennett Hall at Congregational Church was very successful. The scarecrow and the wicked witch were standouts, but all the other roles were well done, Dorothy was larger than life, and the various troops of children marshalled for the group parts were well drilled and charming. The aerial stunts made for high production values, which... More

We attended The Wizard of Oz and absolutely loved it. Very well done by local talent and it was fun to be in an audience of locals as well.

Theatre Workshop of Nantucket's excellent rendition of John Guare's "Six Degrees of Separation" is not to be missed. The intelligent script gives the audience much to ponder about the role of class, race, imagination, reality and perception. Director Kate Splaine brings out the talents of the actors in this well-staged production. Annie Breeding and John Devaney play Louise and Flan,... More

The theater is lovely and a nice size with a great layout for sightlines Would definitely see another play there. However, the play we saw was not so great . It was a bit over-acted and spotty. It did give us an evening out on a rainy night so not a terrible experience.

Recently saw the Theater Workshop of Nantucket production of Time Stands Still. Enjoyed the performance and felt that the actors did a good job of presenting the dilemma faced by the main characters, i.e., balancing their journalistic ethics/commitment and danger with personal comfort and security. So great that Nantucket can support a theater company!
